Stephanie from,Georgia called in today to Marty and McGee to suggest I blog my baking for the show on Saturdays… Which reminded me I have neglected posting on my blog.. So here is today’s treat! I will be better about blogging.. And, I think I need to start doing baking videos again, too!

Cake ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup mill
  • 1 tsp lemon juice or white vinegar

Directions

Preheat oven to 350. Spray 12×17 cookie sheet with cooking spray. Add lemon juice or vinegar to milk. Let sit 5 minutes. In a microwave safe bowl, microwave butter, water and cocoa in 45 second increments until butter is melted. Add dry ingredients. In separate bowl mix eggs, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. Add to chocolate mixture then blend in milk mixture. Spread evenly into pan. Bake 12 -17 minutes (toothpick inserted in center should come out with a few crumbs.)

Frosting ingredients

3/4 cup butter, melted

3 cups powered sugar

1/3 cup milk

3/4 cup peanut butter

2 tsp vanilla

Combine and microwave in 30 second increments until you can stir smooth. You can add more milk, one tbs at a time to make it thinner if you would like. Pour over warm cake. Let cool completely.

Cut and store in covered container.
